Swansea City players, Coaching Staff and fans were left bitterly disappointed with the postponement of yesterday's league one game at The Memorial Stadium.
Weather forecasts left the Bristol club under no allusions that the game was likely not to go ahead.It was this concern that led club officials to call on fans to pitch in to get the playing surface in a playable state.
Over 50 Rovers supporters answered their clubs call but their efforts were to be in vain.
After a pitch inspection by Uriah Rennie and his assistant officials at 12.45 the playing surface was deemed unplayable.
As the fixtures pile up for the South Wales club Martinez was left bitterly disappointed that Swansea could not capitalize on the clubs good run of form.
With 500 or so Swansea City fans making the short journey to The Memorial Stadium , coaches carrying them too the ground had to be turned back.
Swansea Manager Roberto Martinez was told of the postponement at the clubs Hotel and offered some sympathetic words to the 500 or so fans following the squad to the game
He told :
The Western Mail
|'"I feel for our fans in this situation.'|
When this happens you hope for an early call to reduce the damage.'
But Bristol Rovers obviously wanted to give the game the best possible chance following the postponement on Wednesday and that is a very honest approach to take.'
They were hoping the pitch would be fine when the covers were taken off but sadly that was not the case."
It`s very frustrating - when we get in a good position in the league we seem to get a game called off,"
